Watch: Caroline Flack's mum tears up as she reveals 'sadness' over daughter's death
Caroline Flack's mum Christine has said the sadness over her daughter’s death “doesn’t go”.
Her loved ones have now organised a festival in her honour - Flackstock – which has the likes of Natalie Imbruglia and Louise Redknapp on the bill and will raise funds for mental health charities.
“I just feel really sad and I don’t think that feeling is going to go,” she said, becoming emotional.
“I think you just feel there’s a sadness.
“But you get on with things. Everybody has to get on with life and do things.
"But the sadness doesn’t go.”
Christine said she thought the festival, which will also feature comedy and dance acts, was a “positive” way to celebrate the TV star.
“In a really positive way, she loved dancing and singing,” she said.
'She loved dancing, singing and festivals.'

“She loved festivals and there was such negativity around when she died that this is something that she was really like. It was her 90% of the time.
“It’s the best way I can think that we can celebrate her. Because she was like that. She thought about people’s feelings.
“Things, they do hurt. But this will just be positive."
“We will be laughing," she went on.
"We will be singing hopefully. We will probably do quite a bit of crying. But it is just lovely.”
Christine was joined on the ITV show by Flack’s friend Natalie Pinkham.
The sports broadcaster said because of the COVID pandemic there hadn’t been the opportunity to hold a memorial for Flack.
“I think a big part of grief is coming together and we weren’t able to do that either and so this represents all of that in a very positive way,” she said.
Flackstock will be held on 25 July in the grounds of Englefield House, near Pangbourne in Berkshire.
Tickets are available now.
